Handmade in Britain partners with Wild Island Botanic Gin

Handmade in Britain is delighted to announce a brand new partnership with Wild Island Botanic Gin.

Conceived on the Isle of Colonsay, one of Scotland’s Southern Hebridean islands, Wild Island Botanic Gin infuses naturally growing botanicals from the island with 100% British wheat spirit, to create a premium gin of the highest quality.

Using a total of 16 botanicals and distilled using the traditional single copper pot still method, they have created a drink that has a refreshing lemon base, pronounced further by a diverse array of leaves and flowers – including lemon balm – hand foraged on the island and selected to deliver a gentle floral, citrus fresh character.

As our exclusive spirit sponsor, Wild Island Botanic Gin will be served to guests at the VIP private view events for
Sculpt at Kew, Handmade at Kew, Handmade Edinburgh and Handmade in Britain at Chelsea Old Town Hall­­­­­, both in its signature lemon-mint gin and tonic and in the refreshing classic cocktail, Southside.

Director of Wild Island Botanic Gin, Keith Bonnington, confirmed the partnership saying: "Handmade in Britain is the perfect fit for Wild Island Botanic Gin as their celebration and appreciation of fine art, craft and design rings true with the values of our brand. Of particular interest to us was their championing of emerging talent within the UK, acting as a great platform for young designer-makers to showcase their skills. We look forward to working together over the coming months on some amazing displays of all that is great in contemporary craft and design within the UK."

Creative Director of Handmade in Britain, Piyush Suri, added:
“We are excited to be collaborating with Wild Island Botanic Gin, not only due to the incredible taste of their products, but because of the distinctive, abstract designs on their bottles. Inspired by Kiloran Bay on the Isle of Colonsay, the intricate artwork is hand applied and kiln fired onto the glass, demonstrating what a great fit this partnership is for Handmade in Britain. We look forward to working together on our upcoming craft and design events."
